Campaign For Girls

No one knows more about girls than Girl Scouts! We know when girls are given the opportunity to discover their strengths and nurture their talents, they can become a positive force in their families and communities. In fact, 80% of Girl Scout alumnae attribute their personal and professional success to Girl Scouting.

As the nation’s premier leadership organization for girls, Girl Scouts has been changing the world for 103 years. Our leadership development program is more relevant today than ever before. Girl Scouts is dedicated to helping girls reach their full potential by building the character, confidence and courage they need to make the world a better place.

The Campaign for Girls in Arizona is an effort by Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council to achieve better outcomes for Arizona girls.



Our Goals

Reach and Support More Girls
We want to bring the power of Girl Scouting to more girls throughout the state, especially in underserved communities. And, we want to recruit and train more adult volunteers to support these girls.

Build a Place for Girls
We want to transform Camp Sombrero, our existing 14.5 acre property, into The Leadership Center for Girls and Women. After serving girls for more than 60 years, this camp needs to be renovated.

The Leadership Center will have meeting spaces for large and small group activities and trainings, classrooms for STEM and other focus area programs, a pool and sports field, and temperature-controlled cabins so girls can have year-around overnight camp experiences close home. This property, perched on the side of South Mountain, will become a vibrant center in the south Phoenix community.

Deliver Relevant, Innovative and Age-Specific Programs
We want to ensure Arizona’s girls are prepared for the future by continuing to offer enhanced programs in our five key focus areas: Financial Literacy, Healthy Living, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Environmental Leadership and Global Citizenship. Our approach is to collaborate more deeply with business, government, nonprofit and academic leaders in each area to leverage the success of our programs and optimize their real-world impacts

Why is this Important?

“How we raise and teach our children
will impact our entire community.”
 

We want to help create a more level field where girls in Arizona can share in the practice of leadership equality – for the betterment of everyone.

Arizona currently ranks 46th in the country for overall child well-being, according to the Annie E. Casey Foundation. This ranking combines the factors of economic well-being, education, health, and family and community. We must do more!

Investing in the healthy development of girls is the most cost efficient and impactful way to ensure healthy Arizona families and communities in the future.
